[PATCH 1/3] rtc: stm32: remove __exit annotation on remove callback

The remove function can be called at runtime for a manual 'unbind'
operation and must not be left out from a built-in driver, as kbuild

`stm32_rtc_remove' referenced in section `.data.stm32_rtc_driver' of drivers/rtc/rtc-stm32.o: defined in discarded section `.exit.text' of drivers/rtc/rtc-stm32.o

This removes the extraneous annotation.
